of the fact that was used to talk about the king is the fact that he was preventing people from coming to the country and being able to migrate here kyl and then if we look at the statue of liberty to give me your tired in your poor what i don't want people to take away from this hearing is all of a sudden we forgot about the tide of the poor and the people that are striving for a better life, so those are probably my biggest concerns when we what that he the president we sat and we have economic problems and we are getting out of them like we always do we and we will always prospered because we are resilient. but the question becomes what about the moral ground that we would see if we just said we are going to get about 11 million people and we are only going to focus on skilled workers we are not going to take care of this house and equal protection do you worry about that? >> i do. the fifth thing is our country is in a mess. we have a brain drain but not for the first time in history. it's never happened before. america has been a land. it is happening right now. if we wait to fix

created by congress to govern. we were created to help govern the nation. this is what brings us to our hearing today. we will focus on the impact of the sequester. i think it is a bad idea. it is bad policy. it is a bad economic policy. it is bad governing policy. i really do not like it. it is working with the leadership to be able to find a way to avoid the sequester in the hopes that a higher power find a way for the nine years that it is mandated. what we hope to accomplish today is to take a look at the impacts if the sequester happens for the american people. thank you for everyone coming. we thank you for speaking about defense. it has been well heard and well spoken. we look toward to hearing from you, secretary napolitano. in the u.s. military, military, those who wear the uniform, will be protected in the sequester, and they should. there are others that need to be protected. what is the impact of them? and also the future of the country, the ability to -- the middle class. this is where secretary donovan, we want to talk to about housing and the economy. what is it that we n

"commitment to the values that define us as americans." others note his impeccable integrity and his dedication to the country is second to none. without unanimous consent, i would like to insert into the record matters the committee has received in regard to brennan's nomination. john brennan by all accounts will be a strong leader, guided firmly by the law and his strong ethical code. he has assured the committee in his response to pre-hearing questions that he will be independent from political influence. he will seek only to provide the president, the congress, and other leaders with his best analysis and advice. his responses to the committee's questions are available on the committee's website. intelligence.senate.gov. of course the committee must conduct its due diligence on such an important nominee, some members are going to have questions in a range of topics, including his plans for directing the agency, major national security challenges we face, positions and actions he has taken in his current and past jobs. also of interest will be mr. brennan's the view on the use of
-mail us as well, journal@c-span.org. president obama was in minneapolis yesterday talking about gun control. here is what he had to say on background checks. [video clip] >> the vast majority of americans, including gun owners, support background checks for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] so, right now democrats and republicans in the senate are working on a bill that would ban anyone from selling a gun legally for him -- selling a gun to anyone legally prohibited from owning one. that is common sense. there is no reason we cannot get that done. that is not a liberal or conservative idea, it is a smart idea. we want to keep the guns out of the hands of folks who should not have them. senators from both parties have come together to propose a bill that would crack down on people who buy guns only to turn around and sell them to criminals. a bill that would keep more guns off the street and out of the hands of people with the intent of doing harm. [applause] by the way, in addition to reducing violence on the streets, it would make life easier and safer for the people standing
appreciate the same be done for all of us. it's not an absence of commitment, to try close because pakistan remains firmly committed to fighting, combating extremism and manifestations because u.s. is not something we could walk away from. it's a clear and present danger to our society and way of life. and when you say what are the worries? one of the worries is that there may be security vacuums after the straw down because many of the timelines spoken of in terms of transitions and sectarian of a possible negotiated peace are all right now timelines and we look at them with hope and we have been strenuous in moving all of our resources, clinical, to not make an otherwise to the task of whatever negotiated settlement the united states and afghanistan are seeking in this moment of challenging transition. >> termer cubby, david word, and emily jake. >> ambassador, thank you for being here. two questions. one, hamid karzai and david cameron had a meeting to spend a six-month deadline on tax of the taliban. two ambition i pakistan was a political party functioning in society? and two, to think

he'll use the platform to talk about what unites us as americans, what unites us through religious leaders, they're all under the same roof believing in something bigger than themselves and focus on equality and stay away from making them totally angry. >> that would be the headline coming out of the prayer breakfast. >> mr. sacorides what do you think? >> it is fine and good to talk about common ground on the occasion of the national prayer breakfast but it's also important to talk about how the fact that in this country, we're for equality, that's what our founding fathers were all about, that's one of our founding principles and why everybody in the country has to be treated equally. >> it's taken us a while to get to some of that from our founding fathers, that's a topic for another day. we're out of time, watching the national prayer breakfast expecting to hear from president obama, that's going to be happening any moment now. want to get to "cnn newsroom" with carol costello, beginnins right now. >>> happening now in "the newsroom," weekend whiteout the northeast about to get
